Who says that you can’t make REAL friends on social media? It’s been more than a year since I got that first Instagram comment from a lady that would later become my dearest Twista (Twitter + Sista). I SWEAR I believe it was love at first tweet. While we initially bonded over our fetish for ratchet reality TV, it quickly became clear to me that Tretta Bush was a lot deeper than she initially let on. I think perhaps it is her humility that endeared me most to her.
You will never hear her say that she has build a thriving financial services firm or that her financial acumen has landed her in Essence magazine. If you heard her speak in her authentic “sister-girl” tone, you would never guess that she is a sought after speaker and the founder of a financial movement designed to empower women. Nope, you will never hear ANY of this stuff from Tretta herself, so being the PROUD new friend that I am, I just decided to shout it from the blog tops!
Without further adoo, please take time to read the official bio of my Twista boo Tretta Bush.
For nearly a decade Tretta Bush has been a sought Managerial Accountant specializing in small business operations. Her expertise in accounting, tax strategy, and operations has allowed her to successfully service a plethora of diverse businesses. Her roster of clients range from church leaders to benchmarking CEOs and their annual earnings have ranged from 60k to 100m. But it was Tretta’s personal experience with crippling debt that started the next leg of her journey.
As a recent college graduate earning well above the average salary, she found herself under a mountain of consumer debt. In order to forge her way to financial freedom, she created a financial plan that delivered her from the trenches of debt in less than 3 years. It was there that her life’s mission became abundantly clear and she set about positioning herself to teach her methodology to others who shared a similar path. Her calling was to empower others to create a life free from financial bondage; this idea gave birth to her consulting firm, Tretta Bush & Associates.
Tretta’s financial prowess has been featured in ESSENCE Magazine and she has appeared on MSN.com as a financial expert. Tretta also carries a weekly segment on the Stellar Award Winning Radio 1000 offering practical tips on how to live a full life while being financially responsible.
Now, as a personal finance educator, Tretta uses personal mantra of “Building Wealth In My Stilettos” to drive home her commitment to being spiritually grounded, fabulous, and wealthy!
